Graduate Studies Awards & Financial Assistance Part-time Canada Student Loan/Special Opportunity Grant Program (PTCSL/SOG)


Part-time Canada Student Loan/Special Opportunity Grant Program (PTCSL/SOG)
In order to be eligible for a Part-time Canada Student Loan/Special Opportunity Grant, you must be a Canadian citizen or permanent resident of Canada, as well as a resident of a province or territory that participates in the Canada Student Loans Program. You may take a maximum 40% course load (1.0 credits per term). (Graduate students must be part-time.) This part-time program only considers direct educational costs (i.e., tuition, compulsory fees, books, etc.); there is no assistance to cover living expenses. The government has outlined the maximum total family gross income and assets per family size a student must meet in order to qualify for assistance. The maximum amount of loan available is $4,000. These loans are not interest-free. In order to qualify for the Special Opportunity Grant you must meet the government's target group for part-time studies (i.e., you are a sole support parent with children under the age of 11, you are disabled, you are restricted by the university to part-time studies, etc.). The maximum amount of grant assistance available is $1,200 per year (May to April). Applications are available in the Office of the University Registrar (Student Awards).
